What is this Petco PK?

I went in to Petco to pick up some New Life Spectrum pellets and came out with this guy. His colors just caught my eye.

I know he's a Plakat, but as for color/pattern what have you, I'm very new at at this.

He's a sort of turquoise color; in some light he looks blue, in some he shines green. His scales are also very prominent and he has this cute little pattern on his head.

I'm contemplating between Puzzle [his head reminds me of a jigsaw, but I'm avoiding that name due to the movie] and Head N Shoulders due to the little white scales on his head.

I've included a shot in high lighting, low lighting, and a head shot.

Petco is so dangerous for me...

I wouldn't mind if he marbles out as long as he keeps some of that pretty green/blue color!

Thanks everyone!
